A Little About Me


I've been surrounded by music since birth, my parents sat with Baba Muktananda in the 70s, and my incredible wife inspired me to love fitness and nutrition at the “late” age of 25.  My studies have taken me from a traditional Western classical music training in piano, orchestral percussion, and drums to writing Music Theater and singing Kirtan behind (see above) and in front of a harmonium. 

Some of my favorite things I've done/been a part of:

  •  I got to co-interview and get to know about 30 veterans and active duty soldiers for my and Jerre Dye's opera THE FALLING AND THE RISING.  Making 75 year old Vietnam vets, secret service agents, and young musical theater nerds cry tears of compassion and love in the same room has definitely been a highlight of my life.

  •  Sara Cooper and I (The Memory Show, Loving Leo, Windows, Male Identity), won the 2014 Jonathan Larson Grant (awarded by the American Theater Wing). At the ceremony I got to exchange a couple sentences with Lin Manuel about how excited I was for him to finally open Hamilton at the Public

  • I got to write A Song for Susan Smith for my incredible wife Brittney's first doctoral recital with the brilliant librettist Mark Campbell. Since then, the opera has had a three fantastic workshops and will hopefully premier soon at a theater near you... :)

  • Movin’ Up In The World (libretto by Jerre Dye), commissioned by Opera Memphis in 2014, is a short monodrama that I am very proud of. It was the first time I worked with Jerre and the piece moves me every time I see it performed.  

  • Houston Grand Opera Co has commissioned me to write the score and libretto (my first!) to a new "Untitled Chamber Opera" on Sacrifice. I'm pretty excited about how it's coming out so far. HGOco will premier the piece in 2021. 

  • I spent eight years working with extraordinarily talented Broadway composers, music directors, orchestrators, directors, actors, etc. working as a music copyist.

  • I love teaching Music for Librettists and advising second year thesis projects at my alma mater - NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

  • I received his 200 HR Yoga teacher training from Jaya Yoga Center in Brooklyn, NY, our second family. I'm slowly starting to carve out a teaching practice in Greenwich, where we moved a couple years ago. More on that soon! 

  • I run ultramarathons

  • I love cooking all the plants for my  vegan family

  • I am father of two amazing sons, Ellis and Henry. 

  • I am also lucky enough to have the love and support of the amazing DOCTOR Brittney Redler. :)
